We stumbled over this greek resturant witch is located in a side alley near Queensway. The staff is friendly and very serviceminded. We ordered a selection of starters, and the food was excellent. We particularly liked the squid. Well worth a visit.

Wondered into Queensway and bumped into a guy dressed in traditional blue and white Greek costume; he was awesome (he even took pics with us) and guided us to Kalamaras Taverna. This place is a hidden gem and the staff are so welcoming. The food...More

Description
Founded in 1966 and hidden in a quiet mews off Queensway, we offer fantastic authentic Greek food with a warm welcome and friendly service. Over the years we have had many famous people regularly dine here including the Beatles, Peter Sellers and his friends, racing drivers Graham and Damon Hill, also many actors and actresses, such as Telly Savalas (Kojak), Faye Dunaway, Irene Pappas, Mick Jagger and many other well-known names of the 60’s, 70’s and the present day. But it is not just the stars; many people have always loved dining here: members of the local, international and Greek Bayswater communities, as well as students and tourists who visit London. They all like the friendly and informal atmosphere and the healthy Greek food. We invite you to join us and carry on the glorious tradition of Kalamaras.
